Wii Zelda: MotionPlus improves swordplay

Miyamoto details use of MotionPlus in secret Zelda project

Little-to-nothing is known about the Zelda game Shigeru Miyamoto and his team are working on, except for the fact that it'll use the Wii MotionPlus peripheral.

Speaking during a recent Q&A session, Miyamoto said: "We're using MotionPlus to make you feel much more like you're actually fighting while holding a sword in your hand."


He also claimed that MotionPlus would help the targeting system. "In the previous game, you aimed at things by pointing at the screen, but this time we'll use MotionPlus to create a much more convenient targeting system and a more pleasurable playing experience," he said.
